, president obama has made it clear that his red line in syria is the use or movement of chemical weapons. what specifically will he do if that has happened, the administration has not said, but i can tell you that one option they are weighing is to arm the rebel forces in syria. senators mccain and graham have said that this administration should move forward with that if it is, in fact, confirmed that chemical weapons were used. but martin, right now, the administration being very careful with its wording because there is no confirmation that chemical weapons were, in fact, used. having said that, they are quite disturbed by the increase in violence and ongoing violence. they continue to call for assad to step down. >> i assume, kristen, prime minister netanyahu is going to press the president on syria as much as he will on the issue of iran, given developments today. >> reporter: absolutely. syria, iran, i think that president obama when he speaks to prime minister netanyahu will go there with the intent of making it very clear that the united states is committed to preventing iran fro

in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuclear program is. are they going to be able to find common ground here? >> yes, it is about how imminent in the threat, and even more important, how to deal with it. president obama insists it will be america that will call the shots on iran and not israel. that is a row, even if it has the right to act on its own defense security, it would be america that has its back -- israel, even if it has the right to act on its own defense security. it does it will be america who decides what goes on and how iran will be handled and
. the situation here in syria is sure to come up tomorrow. president obama makes his first trep to israel since moving into the white house. the president will be just over 300 miles from where these chemical weapons might have been used in syria when he arrives in tel aviv. you can see the proximity here. no main announcements are planned during this visit. mideast leaders obama will immediate with include netanyahu, mahmoud abbas and king abdullah of jordan. >>> so you thought the election season was over. huh-uh. it is primary day in south carolina, folks. i'm talking low country. you see it right there. this state's first congressional district anchored by charleston and what a cast of characters this little race for congress. you have a man known as the former governor of the appalachiap ppa lash shap trail. the son of a certain media mogul, and you've also got the sister of a very famous funny man. and don't to get this, we're talking about south carolina. home of kamikaze style politics. this is an old fashioned street fight why a state where they all intersect. john avalon, piece choini
in 2007. israel wants to get rid of all advanced weapons in syria. so when-- if obama were to send in more advanced weapons to the rebels, i think this would make israelis nervous. and that's one of the constraints that i think weighs on him in his deliberations about whether to get more deeply involved in the situation. >> could i just go back and contradict or challenge one or two assertions. i don't think it's a big problem for president obama to start sending arms to the opposition. if anything, he may have reached a point where it's a bigger problem if he doesn't. it's a hard position to say we're not going get involved this against the backdrop of genocide and the strategic-- it's hard for the president to argue he's going to do nothing. i actually think it's the less difficult path, and i think it's a question of when not if the administration moves in that direction. we've been creeping towards it, various forms of nonlethal aid-- quote, unquote. this is going to happen. secondly, the israelis, yes, they're corporated about weapons going into syria. they're more concerned, quite ho

the president's visit will restart mid east peace talks. >>> syria a big topic. president obama said the u.s. is still investigating the report that chemical weapons were used in yesterday's attack in aleppo that killed 25. at this time the president says he is deeply skeptical. he did add if either side of the syrian war does use chemical weapons it would be a quote game changes. cyprus is looking towards russia for a life line. the island country is asking for a huge low interest loan. cyprus searching for another solution after the parliament rejected plan a yesterday, raise money by taxing up to 10% of people's savings accounts. cyprus needs $20 billion to avoid bankruptcy and the country needs to raise $7 billion of it on its own in order to secure another $13 billion from them. >>> thank you. new tonight at 6:00. five former elected officials in the southern california city of bell have been convicted of multiple counts of misappropriating public funds. the scandal broke out in 2010 when it was revealed that the small city's mayor and several council members were using public money t
on to possibly deal with syria's chemical weapons, all issues on the table when president obama walks off air force one there. this first part of the trip, though, when he was back here in israel can largely be seen as win a hearts and meendz of the israeli people. when president obama showed up here, only about 10% of israelis decided they liked him, and he decided he was going to go right to the israeli public, and that was a big speech he gave yesterday in which it wasn't so much what he said, but how he said it; the things he said about iran, about a palestinian state were all things we had heard before, but this time he told it inside the israeli narrative, using a lot more empathy towards israel, not so much preaching saying i'm here to help israel. in fact, in many ways that worked. if you look at the front pages of the israeli newspapers today, all offered a lot of praise here for president obama and his trip. and this is the main newspaper, the e equivalent of the aye tims here in israel, and it quotes him saying tell your leaders to make peace, his vision of an israeli/palestinian r

clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obama administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed the opposition used chemical weapons. the opposition claimed the assad regime used them. our ambassador in syria, by the way is in washington, there was no chemical weapons attack at all. here is the bottom line for the united states. these weapons can not be allowed to exit syria. they can in the be allowed to get out of the country to fall into the happened of al qaeda or other terrorist groups to be used against the united states. melissa: what are the odds of that happening? >> i think they're high. i think the assad regime is in disarray. we can not have confidence. they continue it have command-and-control over those chemical weapons. it has been a goal of al qaeda for decades to get weapons of mass destruction and
remains committed to peace and the solution of two states. >> president obama met with him at the prime minister's private residence. focusing on peace between israelis and palestinians along with preventing iran from developing a nuclear weapon. >>> president obama also spoke today about the situation in syria saying he is skeptical of claims by the government that rebel forces have used chemical weapons. they've ause caused each other of using such weapons yesterday. 31 people died in the most recent fighting. president obama says the u.s. is investigating to see if any chemical weapons were used. >>> the federal reserve said stimulus is still needed. the economy has become stronger after a pause late last year. more needs to be done. he says as long as inflation remains mild he plans to keep short term interest rates at record lows until unemployment falls to 6.5% and that's not expected to happen until 2015. >>> on wall street the comments helped drive the markets higher. the dow closed up almost 56 points. the nasdaq was up 25. the s&p was up more than 10 points. >>> growing concer

. president obama stopped in jordan today where he met with king abdullah. they held a joint news conference today. and syria was the main topic. syria's civil war has pushed about 460-thousand refugees across jordan's borders. the king says that number will probably double by the end of the year. president obama says he will try to get an additional 200-million dollars in aid to help jordan. the justice department will offer states more than $20- million-dollars -- aimed at strengthening the background checks when people buy guns. the money will help state officials to share more information.among other things. congress is debating whether to expand the background check system.which applies only to sales by federally licensed gun dealers. it does not apply to private transactions at gun shows or online purchases. >> and it was a fantastic friday today. temperatures in the lower 70's in napa. 60s and oakland. san jose, 67 degrees. concord also to the lower 70's. temperatures right now are cooling down quite a bit and fairly comfortable. mountain view, 57 degrees. napa cooling down to 55 degr
